China is vast in every sense. A mismatched and hypnotising land that runs headlong from hyper-modern cityscapes into raggedy urban facades, following into sprawling farmland and charming greenery. Beijing and Shanghai are two of the most famous cities; the former cultured and worn, and the latter dense and cosmopolitan.
Away from the cities it’s the oriental mystique that China is famous for – this is a country that redefines your concept of ancient culture. The frighteningly massive Great Wall and myriad temples and historical sites offer virtually unlimited opportunities to immerse yourself in the past.
